1System Introduction

The System Introduction section provides information about the SONOLINE G20™ ultra-
sound system including: system configurations, voltages, features, modes of operation,
system options, and location of external components.
The G20 system is available in the LC and the SLC models. The SLC and the LC models
are available configured to the following voltages: 100 V, 115 V/230 V. The 100 V system
will be sold in Japan only. Each system configuration can be identified by the system type
number.

Configuration Type Number Part Number CE Mark UL/C-UL Yakuji


Mark
LC - 100 V GM-56200A00J 086 47 815 NA NA Yes
LC - 115/230 V GM-56200A00 086 47 831 Yes Yes NA

SLC - 115/230 V GM-562001A00 100 29 135 Yes Yes NA

The G20 system has the following standard features:


• Single beamformer
• 48-channel linear/convex transducers
• Two transducer linear/convex ports and one linear/convex “parking” port (LC model
only)
• Three transducer ports; two linear/convex transducer ports and one sector port (SLC
model only)
• 2-D and M-modes of operation
• Serial communication port
The serial port has a ground four communication lines that consist of send data, receive
data, request to send, and clear to send.
• Universal Serial Bus ports
• CD-RW drive
• Hard drive
• 12-inch monochrome monitor
The G20 system is used to perform the following exams: abdominal, obstetrics (OB), early
OB, breast, thyroid, testicle, prostate, gynecological (GYN), orthopedical, cardiological,
urologic, and cranial. From these exams the following reports can be generated: OB and
early OB, thyroid volume measurement, GYN, orthopedical, cardiological, urologic, and
residual urine volume.

6 System Introduction

48:16 Channel Foldover 0

The G20 transducers1 support 48:16 channel foldover with active transmit and receive
channels from a maximum array of 128 elements. Each transmit channel includes high
voltage power amplifiers to drive each acoustic element in the transducer array. The burst
length ranges from 1 to 16 cycles. The pulse output level from the transducer is software
programmable. This ensures the output level does not exceed the preset value as defined
by the FDA performance standards for ultrasound equipment.
Echo signals are received through 48 buffer amplifier channels. Cross point switch ICs
foldover the 48 buffer amplifier channels into 16 channels signals. Each receiving channel
includes 48 buffer amplifiers. (The maximum number of channels is 48.) The buffer ampli-
fier inputs are electrically protected from high voltage transmit pulses. The channel gain
selection allows aperture shading for a given transducer, dynamic compensating of signal
amplitude variation, and dynamic filter during beam steering. Control signals for the cross
point switch are generated in the A31 transmit and receive beamformer (TRBF) PCB.
The center channels of the RX aperture are combined after the foldover. Some of the
channels on the outer edges of the RX aperture are not used. The following diagrams
show the G20 transducer 48:16 channel foldover and delay curve.

Fig. 1: RX Beamforming - 48:16 Channel Foldover

1. The 75L75S transducer is not supported by the 48:16 channel foldover. Instead it uses a 32:16 channel
foldover.

Tissue Gray Scale Optimization 0

TGO™ tissue gray scale optimization technology applies a gray scale transformation
algorithm to the ultrasound data, resulting in optimized contrast resolution and brightness
uniformity throughout the image. Each image is divided into eight zones in depth (corre-
sponding to the eight TGC slide pots). The average brightness in each zone is computed.
The overall image brightness is computed. A histogram of gray values in each zone is cre-
ated. The eight histograms are calculated to create the same spread of gray scale values
in each zone. The average brightness in each zone is normalized by the average overall
brightness. New digital gain values for each zone are computed and applied.

8 System Introduction

Fig. 3: TGO Optimization


Figures 4 and 5 show the difference the TGO optimization makes on an image.

Fig. 4: TGO Off Fig. 5: TGO On

When TGO is off, the TGC slide pots control the digital gain. When TGO is on, the TGC
slide pots are disabled, and the relative gain for each TGC zone is computed and adjusted
based on the overall image.

Digital Scan Converter 4:2 Interpolation 0

The G20 system utilizes a 4:2 digital scan converter (DSC) interpolation to improve image
quality. A common DSC utilizes 2:2 interpolation. These interpolation methods collect a
grouping echo data to generate a center display pixel. The 2:2 DSC collects lateral echo
data to generate a center display pixel. The 4:2 DSC collects a curved array of echo data
to generate a center display pixel.

Front Control Panel 0

See the SONOLINE G20 Instructions for Use for complete details.
The controls for all imaging modes, parameters, and system selections are found on the
front control panel. The control panel has a combination of keys, rotary knobs, push and
rotate controls, push controls, function keys, and a trackball. When the imaging system is
in use, all controls on the main control panel are back-lit. For most of the controls, the sys-
tem increases the lighting intensity of the controls that are in use. The LED lamps located
under the front of the monitor provide additional task lighting. Use the F7 key on the key-
board to turn the task lighting on and off. Use the system presets to deactivate or adjust
the volume of the beep of the control panel audio signal.
